Halllooooo! Hope you theater students love this! I know I do! :D

O1: Get to know the director. This is a big step. If you've never met him or her before, introduce yourself. Or, better yet, find someone who knows the director and would like to introduce you. Make sure to be friendly and warm. Don't be shy, or the director may think you will have trouble onstage in front of people. It might also help to wear clothes in accordance to the character you are trying out for.

O2: Read the play's script a few days before auditions. It helps to know which character you want to be, but don't get caught up on it. If you're more flexible, you're more likely to get the part. It also shows the director that you cared enough to read the play. It will help you to know how to play a scene in the audition if you really know what is going on in the world of the play

O3: Practice! In theater, you can rarely overdo it! The more you get into character, the better. Then the director will see you can be very dramatic. There's nothing worse for a director than a kid who's afraid to overact. Perhaps listening and responding to the other characters in the scene would be a good idea!

O4: Choose the actors you are paired with wisely. At auditions, if you are doing scenes that aren't monologues (one character acts out a part), you have two options. One: If you feel that you have a lot of ability, pair yourself with talented actors. It will show that you can work with other actors and rise to their level. Or two: This sounds rude, but otherwise pair yourself with poor actors in comparison to you. Then you will be the star of your group.

O5: Practice diction (how to say words) and projecting or getting your voice louder by using your diaphragm to strengthen your words. In musicals, this is very important. At most school musical auditions, projection is the #1 thing they are looking for. A lot of people have pretty voices, but if you can project and belt it out, you will stand out.

O6: Be confident in yourself and don't be afraid to shine!


- If you are doing a show such as Fiddler on the Roof or Cinderella where you will need to read a love scene at auditions/callbacks, chances are you will have to read scenes with more than one guy. SHOW THE SAME ENTHUSIASM for each guy! If you take one guy's hand during the scene, you have to do the same for the next. It shows the director that you can work with any guy.

- Don't be afraid to look stupid. Acting isn't about looking cool. if you are into the moment you won't look stupid. If you do, just laugh it off and forget about it. "If you feel stupid, you're doing it right!"

- Practice acting in front of friends and family members before the audition, so you can use their feedback to improve your performance. Be aware that your friends and family members are not professionals.

- Don't slack off if you don't get the part you wanted. Even the smallest parts have potential for you to prove your acting prowess. Make the most of it and you may be able to get a better part next year.

- Don't be afraid to really get the feel of it. Even during normal life situations, imagine what the character you are playing will do.

- Enunciate your heart out and use as many facials as you can. Don't worry about scaring people who are watching you. It's much more entertaining to hear someone who isn't afraid to shout at the top of their lungs.

- If you have to come in with a memorized monologue from another play, there many different monologue anthologies you can take out from the library.

- Do your homework. Know about the play you took your monologue from, and be prepared to answer questions about it.

Alright! That's all! I hope you get that part in a play that you want! :D
